Pumpkin Cookies Makes about 3-4 dozen
2 ½ cups all- purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. cinnamon
½ tsp. ground nutmeg
½ tsp. salt
1 ½ cups granulated sugar
½ cup butter, softened (1 stick)
1 cup canned 100% pumpkin purée
1 large egg
1 tsp. vanilla
PREHEAT OVEN TO 350°. Grease baking sheets (Sorry, but parchment paper doesn’t work as well with this recipe).
Combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt in a medium bowl and set aside. Beat sugar and butter in large mixer bowl until well blended. Beat in pumpkin, egg and vanilla until smooth. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Drop by rounded tablespoons onto prepared baking sheets.
Bake for 15 to 18 minutes or until the edges are firm. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes and then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
